Major QTL on chromosomes 9S affects silk maysin concentration in four populations


Maize Genetics Cooperation Newsletter ( 71): 27-28
Major QTL on chromosomes 9S affects silk maysin concentration in four populations
Quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis of 4 maize populations (GT114 x GT119, GT114 x NC7A, GE37 x Mp464 and GE37 x FF8) detected a region on chromosome 9S significantly associated with concentration of maysin (a corn earworm (Helicoverpa zea) resistance factor). In each case the QTL displayed dominance to partial dominance for low maysin concentration.
